The Negro Baseball League
Today’s Walking Classroom podcast focuses on the Negro Baseball League. The Negro Baseball League began in America in the early 1900s because Major League Baseball was segregated and only white people were allowed to play. Many players from the Negro Baseball League were incredibly talented and the games were very fun to watch, but the players were paid much less money than the Major League players. Jackie Robinson was the first African American player to play for the formerly all-white Major League. Learn more in this podcast!
